*After her tweets made headlines during the NBA Finals, Ayesha Curry now says she regrets the way she handled herself and “didn’t mean to offend anybody.”
The wife of Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, the reigning two-time NBA Most Valuable Player, said she “didn’t think about the ramifications” when she fired off angry tweets after her husband was ejected during the Warriors’ Game 6 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on June 16.
Curry tweeted that Game 6 was “absolutely rigged for money” or “ratings.” She later deleted the tweet, explaining it was sent “in the heat of the moment.”
“I was just a fan in that moment so I didn’t think about the ramifications,” Curry told People magazine. “I regret the way that I voiced how hurt I was. I felt hurt for [Steph], and I didn’t mean to offend anybody. Obviously, what I wrote is not what I think about what he does for a living.”
Stephen Curry, who joked after the incident that he “might have to cut the Wi-Fi off at my house,” told People that he’s told his wife to “keep being you.”
“I know her intentions. I know where she was coming from,” Curry said. “You’re not going to win any battles on Twitter, so I tell her: ‘Keep being you. Keep doing what you’re doing. Don’t worry about what people are going to say. No matter who you are, they are going to try to find something to try to get under your skin and make you be somebody you’re not.'”
